About the Statement

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for women worldwide, with mortality rates due to cardiogenic shock (CS) remaining exceedingly high. Sex-based disparities in the timely delivery of optimal treatment of CS contribute to poor outcomes and is a major priority to improve women’s cardiovascular health. This consensus, produced in collaboration with EAPCI and ACVC, provides a comprehensive summary of the current state of treatment of cardiogenic shock in women across the spectrum of relevant cardiovascular disease states and identifies important gaps in evidence. As sex-based data are limited in contemporary literature, clinicians may use this document as a resource to guide practice. Further investigations are necessary to inform best practices for the diagnosis and treatment of women with CS.

Development of the statement is sponsored by the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI).

About the Public Comment Period

SCAI develops evidence-based guidance through a rigorous process to help health care providers and patients make decisions, minimize inappropriate practice variation, promote effective resource use, improve clinical outcomes, and direct future research. For a detailed description of the development process and methodology, please refer to the SCAI Publications Committee Manual of Standard Operating Procedures.

Draft statements are made available for public comment before society approval and publication with the aim of engaging key stakeholders in a transparent and rigorous development effort. At the end the comment period, the writing group will review the feedback received and may revise the statement in response. Comments may also inform SCAI’s communication and implementation plan and future updates of the material. Individuals or organizations that provide comments will not typically be identified by name within the final published guidelines.
